    Benefits of Drama

    Drama promotes team-work (team-building games/working together as a cast)

    • Increases self-esteem and confidence.
    • Allows students to express themselves creatively
    • Promotes understanding and empathy (by taking on the role of another character students get the opportunity to learn how to “walk in the shoes of someone else”)
    • Problem solving and co-operation (students work together to develop ideas with one another, they must discuss and agree on outcomes for improvisations and team-work activities)
    • Spatial awareness (students learn not to “block” each other on stage, they learn to create patterns and shapes with their bodies through dance and movement too)
    • Reading and speaking; through the use of tongue twisters, script reading etc students practice reading and speaking. Students learn to emphasize certain words, phrases and how to project their voices properly.
    • Relaxation and fun: drama gives students an outlet to express themselves freely, drama games are fun and allow students to play and relax.
